Although a large part of the workforce in 2019 is between 0.5 and 1.5 per cent more wage, the trade Union Travail.Suisse, with the wage round is not satisfied. Because of the higher inflation and health insurance premiums, the work would have none of it.
Switzerland is since 2016, with annual growth rates of between 1.6 and 2.9 percent in an economic Boom, it said on Tuesday at a media conference by the Federation of labour Travail.Suisse and its affiliated associations.
The insufficient results of the wage round would be in a contrast. "For many workers, the result of the wage fall is sobering," said Syna-President Arno Kerst, according to the written speech text.
The inflation rate to rise again, as well as the premium load at the health insurance companies. Thus taking a further real wage losses that threatened the work it says in a media release. Wage increases of 0.5 to 1 percent is not, or only slightly to compensate for the rising prices that ranged from led Kerst.
"missed the mark distribution policy"
That the purchasing power of the workers tends to decrease also increases with the "failed distribution" policy wage to do by the employer. Ten years ago, two out of three of the work were taking, in the enjoyment of General wage increases.
In the last three years have benefited almost everyone, and every third of them. And the latest Figures from the Federal statistical office show, according to Kerst, that it did not exist in 2018 once in a quarter of the Wage in the tertiary sector General wage increases.
"The Trend of measures, more and more individual Wage, all the work can not take benefit equal to the wage increase, and increases the risk of real wage losses," said Gabriel Fischer, head of economic policy at Travail.Suisse, according to the media release.
Because inflation has recently increased again, and for 2018, approximately one percent will be required to Travail.Suisse, that wage increases must be aligned to compensate for inflation to be increasing generally.
Higher minimum wages in the hospitality industry
As the success of the work values taking-the Federation and the associations attached to Syna, transfair and the Hotel&Gastro Union, that it increases is managed to increase the minimum wages in the cleaning industry, the hairdressing trade, the hospitality industry and the carpenter trade partially significant.
the minimum wages increase in particular in the hospitality sector at the beginning of 2019 to 1 to 1.3 percent, as the social partners also on Tuesday announced. Depending on the wage category, the increases of between 22, respectively, 61 francs per month.
Travail.Suisse acknowledged as the Revision of the gender equality act. Thus, the policy had to be struggled through, larger companies to control the wage equality between the sexes. The enough however, not nearly to equal pay, to ensure in the future.
As a "model example" in terms of wage measures TRANS-fair-President Stefan Müller referred to-the age Matt the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn (MGH). The employees will receive a 1 percent Inflation rate and 0.8 percent of individual wage increase, a monthly fee of 90 Swiss francs on the health insurance premiums.
criticism of hospitals and industry
Many of the wage negotiations not yet completed, or not completed. In his Tour d'Horizon, Syna-President Kerst criticised in particular the "difficult" wage negotiations with the hospitals that invested obviously prefer to be in infrastructure and cutting-edge medicine as a in your nursing staff.
In the case of commercial contracts of the industry and of the healthcare system, the willingness to take in addition, to negotiate with the social partners on eye-level on wage issues. Finally, a further mixing of work and leisure time threatened with the abolition of the working hours for senior staff and specialists, and, ultimately, more free work, Kerst, according to the speech text.
